If youre talking about the brand then no. But, I do use wax designed for the wheels. It makes washing the brake dust so much easier. Totally worth it. And for $15, why not try it?

I just got some Mint Rims from AutoFinesse. Good stuff. Smells great too. I believe they are sponsors here.

^ Thanks

I use Mint Rims with a foam wax applicator and remove when done with one wheel at a time. Protection is an easy 3 months...

Easy to apply and remove, pending you do not walk away for a few hours

I used it but my mistake was waxing all 4 wheels first then going around to wipe it off. It was so hard to get all the wax off.

I had the same problem of getting/buffing the stuff off. I realized I was using way too much. Once I adjusted the amount I used, buffing it off wasn't hard. A little goes a long way.

Zaino Z5 works just as good...if not better.... All I have to do is hose off my wheels when they get really dusty.... Give it a try!
